Here it is:
Life--in all its messy, beautiful glory.
We've been busy with all kinds of spring fun--bunnies, ducks, parks, flowers. We even worked in a spur-of-the-moment beach trip this past weekend, complete with fresh seafood and sleeping in.
There have been other less fun things, too. We are battling yet another round of ear infections, and yes, the doctor finally mentioned the dreaded "tubes." All the while, I feel the dark cloud of anxiety that I have been battling for the last year slowly creeping back in. In the middle of it all, we have just kept moving.
Notice I said moving. Not jogging.
That's right. I quit my Couch to 5K training plan. One snap of cold weather and I was finished. I don't like the cold, and I certainly don't like running in it.
I have kept moving.
I have started over with a new, more sustainable plan. I have started walking with the babies most afternoons for at least 30 minutes. Pushing the big double jogging stroller has to add some additional aerobic benefit.
I may not run the 5K in April, but I will walk it while pushing almost 60 pounds of baby and metal.
I will walk it honor all of the women and their families who keep moving.
The winner of the Cole and the Crooked Flower book giveaway is Erin of Two Possums and a Bug!
Erin has been busy spreading kindness all around, and it makes me happy to be able to send a little something back her way. If I know Erin, she'll find a way to share this book, if not with her own three, sweet kiddos, then with some other very special children.
